Made in Birmingham

by Keith Turner

Made in Birmingham Synopsis

This intriguing collection of over 200 archive photographs, postcards and engravings from collections housed in Birmingham Central Library, recreates scenes from many of the industries that once thrived in the heart of the Midlands. The skilled jobs of gun manufacture, war munitions and car production are explored here alongside the intricate skills of the Jewellery Quarter workshops and the splendour of Cadbury's entrepeneurial village and chocolate production empire. From images of warehouses, factories and workshops the reader is given a unique glimpse of the industries that safeguarded the importance of Birmingham's industrial development. This volume provides a useful comparison for workers today. Made in Birmingham is a valuable pictorial history which will delight those who visit the city for recreational or commercial purposes and evoke memories of times past for those who have worked in and lived around this valuable industrial region.
